Hello and welcome the the Paper Pumpkin Thing monthly blog hop where we share alternate products for the kits contents. This month’s Paper Pumpkin kit is called ‘The Gift of Fall’.
This kit is all about gift giving. 6 gift bags and tons of supplies to make multiple tags. Now, if gift giving isn’t your thing, there are tons of ideas on this blog hop sharing how to use the supplies to make cards. In fact, there is a special add on kit for subscribers that has additional coordinating supplies to make cards. You can view that kit here.
I made this kit up and created 5 bags and tags as directed. This is a super cute and quick to assemble kit. I had so many supplies left that I could easily make a bunch of cards by just adding cardstock.
I made one more bag and tag and altered the design a bit. I changed up that last bag by stamping directly onto the bag using the berry sprig stamp repeatedly in Merry Merlot. Then I used an aqua painter and pulled the Merry Merlot color from the berry sprig stamp into each berry for a soft watercolor looking berry. The tag uses bits and scraps leftover from the kit.
I created this card by adding only cardstock in Crumb Cake and Merry Merlot. I stamped the berry sprig image onto watercolor paper and colored in each berry using the same technique I used on the bag. There are so many elements in this kit I was able to layer and cluster a bunch of leftover bits to finish off the card.
